A Constitution forever under baseless attack. Vestiges emerge of a banana republic…

And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. ~ Revelation 9: 1-2

In case you missed it, the village idiot named Joe who thinks he’s president or something declared war on Florida this past week by virtue of unvaxxed Trump supporters and anyone else thinking (correctly) that the election was stolen. Bigly.

In the meantime we have OBO#44-appointed judges in DC that are creating laws out of their backsides to imprison said Trump supporters and anyone else they can unceremoniously sling into any empty hoosegow cells. In addition We the (90 million+) People witness outrageously clear violations of “Equal Application of the Law” when BLM and Antifa is given free rein to go loot-and-burn-crazy within our cities.

The borders are wide open and thousands of illegals are given taxpayer monies, while the rogue administration just handed over a strategic airbase in Afghanistan to China as if it were theirs to take at any cost – but preferably free and unrestricted.

At what point do We the (90 million+) People say enough?! At what point do we cancel any consent and attempt to thwart the lawlessness of this regime?

When the majority of a population consists of those who are part of the government or receive benefits from the government then we are ruled by a powerful mob that votes to keep the contributors and those productive in some form of slavery. That would be the large swath of the population that work and pay taxes. That would be the middle class. This is exactly what original intent was intended to prevent. There is nothing wrong with the Constitution. The problem is that we don’t apply it as it was written. A Constitution forever under baseless attack.

Alexander Tytler: right all along? A Constitution forever under baseless attack…


Mackubin Owens, American Greatness: ‘Our Constitutional Crisis’ …

Yesterday we celebrated Constitution Day, which marks the date of the signing of the U.S. Constitution in 1787. It is meet and right to praise the Constitution, a remarkable document framed by 55 remarkable men, described by the absent Thomas Jefferson as “an assembly of demi-gods.” These delegates were presented with an opportunity to create, as Alexander Hamilton put it, a government founded on “reflection and choice” rather than on “accident and force.”

But we must also confront the reality that despite the founders’ success in creating such a government, constitutionalism today faces a serious crisis. The reason for this crisis is that the inextricable link between the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, as the framers understood it, has been ripped asunder.

For the founders, the Constitution provided the framework for the kind of government envisioned by the Declaration. But in recent times, the sundering of the Declaration from the Constitution has led to the political crisis that we face today: a lawless executive, a Congress and judiciary complicit in this lawlessness, leading to an out of control federal government that makes a mockery of the idea of a self-governing people.

The apple of gold must be restored to its proper place, relative to the picture of silver. Without this restoration, our crisis of constitutionalism and all its attendant woes will continue.

The Apple of Gold

The link between the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution was nicely captured by Abraham Lincoln in a fragment most likely composed in the winter of 1861, shortly before his inauguration. Contemplating the nature of the Union and the Constitution in the face of the secession crisis, Lincoln argued that the Constitution is principally a framework for sharing power within a republican government. He contended that this was the real thing to be preserved, because only republican government is capable of protecting the rights and liberties of the people. But Lincoln also saw the Declaration of Independence as the foundation of such a government, and the Constitution as the means of implementing it.

In this fragment, Lincoln observes that as important as the Constitution and Union may be, there is “something back of these, entwining itself more closely about the human heart. That something, is the principle of ‘Liberty to all’” as expressed in the Declaration. With or without the Declaration, Lincoln continues, the United States could have declared independence, but “without it, we could not, I think, have secured our free government, and consequent prosperity.”

Using as his text Proverbs 25:11, “A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in frames of silver,” Lincoln argues that the Declaration’s principle of liberty, a “word ‘fitly spoken,’ . . . has proved an ‘apple of gold’ to us.

A Constitution forever under baseless attack. The circumspect irony of Juneteenth…


Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” ~ John Adams

The United States became fundamentally transformed at the beginning of the 20th century and since then Americans haven’t lived in the full constitutional republic conceived by the people who drafted the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution or the Bill of Rights. Like many scholars, some of us stand amazed at the determined ability to overlook the connection between the first wave of mass immigration from say 1880-1926 and the rise of Progressivism. The turn of the 20th century saw millions of poor and largely uneducated people descend upon the United States from the bastions of Europe. Between 1900 and 1920, almost 15 million people flooded the borders of the United States. Like today, they provided the cheap labor necessary for industrialists. It is highly convenient to ignore the outcries from Americans then, as it is now, of immigration at those levels upon the governing compact.

Assuming these people were capable of absorbing American ideals and principles of governance when most couldn’t even read or write English upon arrival (a number of whom never learned English fluently enough to ever justify the vote) is to ignore the reasons for the alienation of Americans from their government and its perpetual thirst for power and control over the populace. It is certainly true today. Does anyone believe that the majority of people flooding our country for the past 30 years from all corners of the globe (whether legally or illegally) are capable of comprehending this country as the Framers did or that the majority agree with it? It isn’t only Disney after all which deals in fantasy!

It saddens one to see what has been done to the country by the evil progressive left, yet let us not pine for the past, but fight for the future. There is only one solution, start local and build up to the state level. Control your state, and push back against the tyranny of the federal government. A Constitution forever under baseless attack MUST develop the backbone to strike back – and fearlessly.

And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. ~ Revelation 9: 3-4
